With a highly reflective fabric, the body of the Light Dome II will stand up to being tossed, grabbed and thrown around for years to come. The double diffusers have been specially designed to produce very soft light and wrap around the subject while the inner diffuser eliminates any unattractive cross lines that are often created by fabric-based diffusion.
Symmetry, reliability and precision characterize the Light Dome II from Aputure. Using a 16 rod Hexadecagon structure creates a precise circular round light as well as an appealing catch light in the eyes of on camera talent.
The mk II introduces an easy set-up system. Instead of inserting all 16 rods into holes on the speedring, they are attached on hinges, Simply pull them into place and they will click in. To release them just take the strain and press the lever and they will fold back down
Deep Box Design
The Light Dome II has a 883mm wide (34.8'') and 610mm deep (24''), which means it is able to produces a large size light source to create an extremely voluminous soft wrap around light.

It is also compatible with a wide variety of Bowen-S mount lighting systems from some "hot lights", strobes to continuous lights and even other LEDs accepting Bowen-S speed rings.
